Downburst and Spectacular Thunderstorm

The view from my home this evening. 
Nothing like the Kansas Sky!
This was right at sunset and the tall cumulonimbus cloud was catching the orange rays. In the foreground is a line of towering cumulus clouds along the outflow winds caused by a downburst near the Sedgwick - Sumner county line. 

Below is a closeup of the towering cumulus moving toward me. 

The towering cumulus were along the leading edge of a downburst's outflow. 
The curved orange line represents the northern edge of downburst winds at 8:27pm. The yellow polygon is a National Weather Service severe thunderstorm warning.
